    Just to clarify, it is Pelican focusing on food?

    If you are looking to dive with small groups (no more than seven divers max) and like long dives where your breathing and nitrogen level determine the length of the dive (not the schedule of the cattleboat operator), then Dive Aruba is your best option.

    I have dived with Clive at Dive Aruba for many years and would recommend him highly to any experienced diver. Clive is also a great instructor and has helped me advance my training while on vacation.

    I rent a house by the Marriott. The gentleman that owns the house has been diving for over 30 years. I just recently became certified and will be diving in Aruba for the first time this year (7/25). He recommended Native Divers, this is who he uses every time he is in Aruba.

    That's what I was told. The owner wants to focus in that area and didn't have time for the shop.

    Unique (Emmit) took over/ bought Pelican's SCUBA operations.
    Pelican still runs tons of other stuff...............Pelican Adventures. Direct competition with DePalm tours.
    Pelican has land tours, watersports, horseback riding and other stuff. http://www.pelican-aruba.com/tours.html

    We had 5 divers, an insructor and 2 divemasters total on the trip. The crew and staff were excellent The trip was out to the Star Garren which I had never dove before. It's a fairly new site. In 50 years it may rival the Antilla wreck.

    I also had a chance to meet Emmit. I think he's doing a great job. Unique took over Pelican last year. I heard that they were looking to focus more on the food service side of their operations. While their shop is between the Radisson and RIU, Unique still maintains the area used by Pelican on the Pelican Pier to pick up divers.

    Nice to be back. With this new format a lot of the nonsense that use to happened should be over with.
